Digo "Si," Señor / I Say "Yes," My Lord

1  To the God who cannot die: I say ’Yes’, my Lord. To the One who hears me cry: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. I say ‘Yes’ , my Lord. To the God of the oppressed: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. I say ‘Yes’ my Lord. To the God of all justice: Yes my Lord I say ‘Yes’ my Lord.  Refrain I say ‘Yes’, my Lord in all the good times, through all the bad times, I say ‘Yes’ my Lord to every word you speak    2   I am a servant of the Lord: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord.   I’m a worker in the fields: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. I am a prisoner of their wars: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord Like a politician, inevitably ‘Yes’, my Lord I say ‘Yes’ my Lord.  3  For the dream I have today: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. To be a healer of all pain: I say ‘Yes’ , my Lord. I say ‘Yes’ , my Lord. To come to love my enemies: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. For your peace in all the world: ‘Yes’, my Lord.  I say ‘Yes’ , my Lord.  4  Like that of Job, unceasingly: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. Like that of Maria wholeheartedly: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. I say ‘Yes’, my Lord. Like that of David in a song: I say ‘Yes’, my Lord.  Like Israel, for you I long: Yes my Lord. I say ‘Yes’ my Lord.
This bi-lingual (English-Spanish) song about social justice issues and commitment to God was written by Donna Peña (b 1955) and has been arranged by Marty Haugen (b 1950). It was first published in 1989.    The original lyrics are in Spanish, so there are variations in the tune when sung in English to accommodate translation.

Sheet music is available from GIA in the Give your Gift collection, and a five-part choral arrangement is available from SheetMusicPlus (link below).

The tune has a 4/4 time signature. In the key of Eb, the first few notes are b B B G FF.
